will unveil today a new 21-member executive as it switches from
national boards to a new body that will serve 86 countries brought together
under a central management structure.

Mark Otty (pictured) becomes area managing partner, supported by two new
deputies: Christoph Gross, who came up through the firm’s German practice, will
be chief operating officer; and Christian Mouillon, who was global vice chairman
of audit and advisory, will be in charge of client service and accounts.

It is understood the new grouping, covering western and Eastern Europe, the
Middle East, India and Africa, will not be pooling profits on an area-wide
basis. E&Y announced that partners across the new formation unanimously back
the structural change.
